Invisible children By: Cynthia C. Hour: 1st

“ In the spring of 2003, three young filmmakers traveled to Africa in search of a story. What started out as a filmmaking adventure transformed into much more when these boys from Southern California discovered a tragedy that disgusted and inspired them, a tragedy where children are both the weapons and the victims. After returning to the States, they created the documentary quot;Invisible Children: Rough Cut,quot; a film that exposes the tragic realities of northern Uganda’s night commuters and child soldiers. ” http://www.invisiblechildren.com/about/whoWeAre/

Background •The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) was formed in 1987 by Alice Lakwena. •Joseph Kony leads LRA after Lakwena is exiled. •Rebels resorted to abducting children to get more soldiers. •Residents moved to overcrowded camps by government. • International Pressure and desired peace brings forth Juba Peace Talks •Kony fails to sign Final Peace Agreement (FPA) numerous times.

Facts •Estimated more that 90% of the LRA troops were abducted as children •1.8 Million people displaced from their homes •LRA murdered over 600 and abducted more than 160 children just as a retaliatory attack against the people of DR Congo.
